Part II Reading Comprehension
Directions: There are 4 passages in this part. Each passage is followed by some
questions or blanks. For each of them there are four choices marked A, B, C, and D or
some words. You should decide on the best choice or word and mark the corresponding
letter on the Answer Sheet with a single line through the center.

Passage 1
       American women experience a great variety of lifestyles. A “typical” American
women may be single. She also be divorced or married. She may be a homemaker, a
doctor, or a factory worker. It is very difficult to generalize about American women.
However, one thing that many American women have in common is their attitude about
themselves and their role in American life.
       Historically, American women have always been very independent. The first
colonists to come to New England were of ten young couples who had left behind their
extended family ( i. e. their parents, sisters, cousins, etc.). The women were alone in a
new, undeveloped country with their husbands. This had two important effects. First of
all, this as yet uncivilized environment demanded that every person share in developing
it and in survival. Women worked along side their husbands and children to establish
themselves in this new land. Second, because they were in a new land without the
established influence of older members of society, women felt free to step into
nontraditional roles.
       This role of women was reinforced in later years as Americans moved west, again
leaving family behind and encountering a hostile environment. Even later, in the East, as
new immigrants arrived, the women often found jobs more easily than men. Women
became the supporters of the family.
       Within the established lifestyle of industrialized twentieth century America, the
strong role of women was not as dramatic as in the early days of the country. Some
women were active outside the home; others were not. However, when American men
went to war in the 1940s, women stepped into the men’s jobs as factory and business
workers. After the war, some women stayed in these positions, and others left their jobs
with a new sense of their own capabilities.
31. A typical American woman is _____.
   A. single or married                   B. divorced

 A. was strengthened                     B. was as important as early
 C. was declined                         D. was more reinforced than early days
34. Women took part in men’s jobs during the time of ______.
 A. the Second World War                 B. the West Movement
 C. the early immigration                D. the industrialized twentieth century

 B. American women were free to step into nontraditional roles.

Passage 3
     My husband and I got married in 1981 and for the first ten years of our marriage I
was very happy to stay home and raise our three children. Then four years ago, our
youngest child went to school and I thought I might go back to work.
     My husband was very supportive and helped me to make my decision. He
emphasized all of the things I can do around the house, and said he thought I could be a
great success in business.
     After several weeks of looking for a job, I found my present job, which is working
for a small public relations firm. At first, my husband was very proud of me and would
tell his friends, “My clever little wife can run that company she’s working for.”
     But as his joking statement approached truth, my husband stopped talking to me
about my job. I have received several promotions and pay increases, and I’m now
making more money than he is. I can buy my own clothes and a new car. Because of our
joined incomes, my husband and I can do many things we had always dreamed of doing,
but we don’t do these things because he is very unhappy.
     We fight about little things and my husband is very critical of me in front of our
friends. For the first time in our marriage, I think it is possible that our marriage may
come to an end.
     I love my husband very much, and I don’t want him to feel inferior, but I also love
my job. I think I can be a good wife and a working woman, but I don’t know how. Who
can give me some advice? Will I have to choose one or the other or can I keep both my
husband and my new career?

Passage 4
    Crime has its own cycles, a magazine reported some years ago. Police records that
were studied for five years from over 2,400 cities and towns show a surprising relation
between changes in the season and crime patterns.
    The pattern of crime has changed very little over a long period of years. Murder
reaches its high during July and August, as do other violent attacks. Murder, in addition,
is more than seasonal; it is a weekend crime. It is also a nighttime crime: 62 percent of
murders are committed between 6 p.m. and 6 a. m.
    Unlike the summer high in crimes of bodily harm, break and enter or “B and E” has
a different cycle. You are most likely to be robbed between 6 p.m. and 2 a. m. on a
Saturday night in December, January, or February. Which is the least criminal month of
all? May--- except for one strange statistic. More dog bites are reported in this month
than in any other month of the year.
    Apparently our intellectual (智力的) seasonal cycles are completely different from
our criminal patterns. Professor Huntington, of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles,
made a lot of studies to discover the seasons when people read serious books, attend
scientific meetings, make the highest scores on examinations, and suggest the most
changes to patents (专利). In all examples, he found a spring peak and an autumn peak
separated by a summer low. On the other hand, Professor Huntington’s studies showed
that June is the peak month for suicides(自杀) and for admitting patients to mental
hospitals. June is also a peak month for marriages!
    Possibly, high temperature and humidity(湿度) bring on our strange and surprising
summer actions, but police officers are not sure. “There is, of course, no proof of a
relation between humidity and murder,” they say. “Why murder’s high time should come
in the summer time we really don’t know.”
51. According to the passage, violent attacks most likely take place _____.
  A. on the weekend during the summer time
  B. from 6 a. m. to 6 p. m. on weekdays
  C. when it is very cold          D. during the daytime
52. It can be concluded from the passage that _______.

 A. intellectual cycles are the same as crime cycles
 B. more people kill themselves in June
 C. students make the highest scores on examinations during the summer
 D. people read serious books in winter
53. Which of the following statements is not true?
 A. More dog bites are reported in May
 B. People are most likely to be robbed during summer seasons.
 C. Changes in the season are related to crime patterns.
 D. Break and enter crime usually take place on a Saturday night.
54. The main idea of the passage is that _____.
 A. the relation between humidity and murder has not been proved
 B. hot summers make people’s behavior strange
 C. the rate of crimes of bodily harm is highest in summer
 D. seasons do affect criminal and intellectual behavior
55. The best title for this passage is ______.
 A. The Crime of the Month                B. Summer Crimes
 C. A Season for Murder                   D. Different Crime Patterns
